Stay in the city centre, since the Millenium Stadium has been built there are stacks of hotels to meet every budget! Travel lodge near the station, B&Bs on cathedral road all in walking distance of the centre!

There are buses and trains and taxis all readily available. Take a bus from the main bus station, down to Cardiff Bay, (about £1.80). There's are bars and restaurants galore as well as a museum and harbour side. The Barrage is worth a look too (land train from the bay). The new Dr Who interactive exhibition is also down cardiff bay.

If you are feeling fit, the cardiff Bay Area also has a MASSIVE leisure swimming pool with great slides! An ice rink and even a White Water rafting centre (expensive but great fun).

The town centre offers loads of shops including boutiques down passageways and Hugo Boss, and even pound stretchers! There's a museum, 2 theatres, a load of live music venues (the biggest being the Motoroint Arena). Food and drink is available everywhere in the town centre. Look at trip advisor for some ideas. The Potted Pig is great, and chips (and a Rissole if you dare) from Caroline Street is essential!

3 days is not enough! You will have a great time in a fantastic city! Enjoy!

If you have any interest in Welsh history and culture then a visit to St Fagan's is a must.
